EXALEAD OnePart is a business discovery application. It facilitates reuse of parts, designs, specifications, standards, test results, and related data, for engineering and manufacturing. OnePart locates information from multiple sources and makes it available instantly. It does so by leveraging proven web semantics, analytics, mashup, and big data management technologies of EXALEAD CloudView™.
With EXALEAD OnePart, those involved in the product development process – from engineers to procurement specialists – can quickly and easily find and reuse existing parts, product designs and related information, located anywhere inside the organization. It can even go beyond obvious PDM / PLM repositories. The result: optimized reuse of parts, designs, and related documentation. Thus product development and delivery is accelerated. Design, manufacturing, material, and storage costs are decreased, while revenue is increased.
OnePart helps designers and engineers find a reusable part at the speed of thought so they can determine whether it is really necessary to create new parts and the inherent costs. With just a few clicks, users can explore legacy parts and related 2D/3D designs, gaining immediate insight into vast amounts of previously hidden data. They can further refine their search using side-by-side comparisons to identify the right part. When a similar part is discovered, the user can also analyze important related documentation, such as specifications, testing, validation, and certification materials, in multiple formats (such as .xls & .pdf), to facilitate optimal reuse and a complete view of the situation.
